Vampire Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Hailing from Paso Robles, Calif., this Cabernet Sauvignon is lush and succulent, just as it should be. The Cab is blended with a bit of Merlot and a splash of Syrah to make it easy drinking with plenty of complexity and a hint of spice. I vant to drink ze whole bottle!

The Velvet Devil Merlot 2009

This wine was a grand hit at this year's Halloween bash. With "sweet chocolate and raspberry aromas and sweet tart berry flavors," this Merlot is "devilishly delicious and hard to put down!"

Misfit Wine Co. "Brujeria" Red Wine 2008

Ahh, monster wine! What better way to scare the pants off your guests than with this amazing bottle? The in-your-face monster (reminds me a bit of one of the characters from Michael Jackson's Thriller) and deeply rich and complex black fruit are the perfect partners for this nightmare of a wine.

There is something about the eerie scene on the Ghost Pine Vineyards label that just lures you in on Halloween. Give in to the terrifying tempation. You'll find aromas of baked apple mixed with some cream and a hint of lemon. The toasty vanilla finish is, well, to die for.
